Symmetry Systems Facts

What does Symmetry Systems Do?

Through our DataGuard DSPM platform, we help organizations answer three fundamental questions about their data:

  • What data do we have and where is it?
  • Who and what has access?
  • How can, has, and is it being used?

These answers show organizations the security posture of their data, prove or enforce compliance, and respond quickly to data violation incidents.

How is Symmetry Systems Different?

At Symmetry Systems, we take a “data-out” perspective to securing enterprise security. We don’t place our focus on perimeters, environmental settings, or other measures—like other solutions. We take a fine-grained look at the security of the data itself, regardless of where it is, to provide visibility into to the actual security posture.

What is Data Security Posture Management?

DSPM is a technology approach coined by Gartner in their 2022 Hype Cycle for Data Security1 for solutions that provide visibility into the data-level security of organizations.

Symmetry Systems Mentioned in Gartner 2023 Innovation Insight: Data Security Posture Management

Symmetry’s DSPM technologies enable organizations to quickly identify risks and mature their security posture over time to protect sensitive and mission-critical data.

According to Gartner in the March 2023 Innovations Insight: Data Security Posture Management report, “DSPM technologies can discover unknown data and categorize structured and unstructured data across cloud service platforms. Security and risk management leaders can also use them to identify security and privacy risks as data spreads through pipelines and across geographic boundaries.”1
